His Palestinian-Syrian parents immigrated to Belgium when he was a young child and that also reflects in his debut single “Hoops”, where he sings, “Antwerp is the city where I don’t think I belong.” The song was an important step for the musician since it was the first song he uncovered after years of working and looking for his sound.

When his demos on SoundCloud gained attention, he was co-signed by Soulection and invited to Los Angeles to work with some big producers. Talking about the experience, he says, “It gave me a taste of how life could be when you have money, and it still motivates me until this day.” Los Angeles is an assembly point for many aspiring talents and helped Abrahamblue discover what kind of artist he wanted to be.
